Distributor opportunities are still available in some countries for Metalier liquid metal coating systems.

Distributor opportunities are still available in some areas. We are incredibly proud, however, that Metalier is now represented in 4 continents – North America, Europe, Asia and Oceania.

And we’re in 12 countries – HQ in NZ, with training hubs and distribution centres in NZ, the UK & Europe and in USA & Canada. We have a master distributor in India and a distributor in the Middle East.

Plus we’re in Belgium, Brunei, Russia, Vietnam and the Philippines and our newest distributors are in Holland and Australia.

Do you want?

  • A proven liquid metal coating system
  • Really good pricing
  • Durable solvent coatings
  • Flexible and water-based coatings
  • Hands-on friendly technical support
  • New finishes regularly

If you want all this (and more) then you should choose the distributor opportunities offered by Metalier.

We’d love to be represented in more countries in Europe, South America and Asia.

Applicator opportunities are also available throughout the world.

If a distributorship is not for you then becoming a Metalier applicator could be the smart business move that puts you head and shoulders above the competition. Becoming an applicator will appeal to companies in the building and product industries, furniture and door makers, sign-writers and designers who want to broaden their offerings.

Our flexible metal coatings have been specially designed and formulated for purchase by film prop and LARP companies to provide a product that gives them flexibility, speed and durability.
